Hubbard Brook walking tour from 50th anniversary

This Youtube video was recently posted from a field tour several of us gave during the 50th anniversary of the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study.  There is good background on forested watershed studies, gaging streams, hydropedology, and local historical ecology at

New paper linking water age and solute dynamics at Hubbard Brook

Paolo Benettin’s paper was just accepted, which was the result of his study abroad visit here in the lab during the fall 2013 and spring 2014.  The manuscript explores water age-dependent transport in estimating weathering-derived solute export.   The model predicts water travel time dynamics

New paper showing alternative source of stream dissolved organic carbon in a headwater catchment

JP Gannon just had another paper accepted in Water Resources Research this week.  The study suggests that dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in headwater streams may be generated from shallow to bedrock regions in the catchment, which mostly occur near the catchment divides

Summer 2015 at Hubbard Brook

It’s that time of year again…the Hubbard Brook Cooperator’s Meeting!  This year we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest.  We had a record attendance at the meeting, and as usual, it was full of great talks and

Paper published on mapping of hydropedologic spatial patterns

A paper from Cody Gillin’s master’s thesis was accepted last week.  The manuscript titled “Mapping of hydropedologic spatial patterns in a steep headwater catchment” will be published in a special issue on hydropedology in the Soil Science Society of America

New paper about how forests lose nitrogen through shallow groundwater flowpaths

In a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, McGuire working with a team from the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study found clear evidence of nitrogen loss through denitrification in isolated shallow groundwater patches in a small

New paper by Gannon on organizing groundwater regimes and response thresholds by soils

JP Gannon had a paper accepted this week in Water Resources Research titled “Organizing groundwater regimes and response thresholds by soils: A framework for understanding runoff generation in a headwater catchment.” Here’s the abstract: A network of shallow groundwater wells
